  • Eva said that through working on herself, she learned the value of relationships: How you do one thing is how you do everything.
  • Eva helps people become high performers in every aspect of their lives.
  • Eva talks about how you have to know yourself, before you grow yourself. She says that what you learned in your early life experiences comes into play in your adult life. You have to recognize those habits so you can reign in the good ones and fix the bad ones.
  • The Five Core Areas of High Performance
    • Clarity
    • Energy
    • Courage
    • Productivity
    • Influence
  • Eva talks about how we need to be aware of our fear. Channel what those fears or experiences you had from childhood are, those things probably have a lot to do with our fears in our adult life.
  • MedsRx: Meditation, Exercise, Diet, Sleep, Supplements 
  • Eva talks about how she relates energy to a racetrack. When you see race cars going around the course and the lead car goes for a pitstop–that car is re-energizing so they have just as much energy in the second half of the race as the first half so they can win. We don’t always do this as humans. Eva talks about how you need to take 3-5 little breaks throughout the day to truly re-energize yourself.
  • Eva says her morning routine is waking up early, and not turning her phone on first thing. Give yourself space to plan out your day and plan out your breaks. Do a meditation, work out, or listen to an inspirational podcast. Maybe you write, or create, so you can get ideas out. Truly give yourself an hour, to have time for you.
  • Productivity, Eva says, is part of planning your day. She says you shouldn’t be working more than 50 minutes at a time at any one task. Give yourself breaks in between your tasks so you don’t get burnt out. She says to set 2-3 goals that you want to accomplish every day so you are truly living for YOU, and so you set yourself up to win the day.
  • Radical responsibility–our results of our lives are a direct result of the choices that we make. Take radical responsibility. 
  • S+R=R (Situation + Reaction = Results)
  • Eva shares that if you want to have a successful business, be a high performer, and have great relationships, you have to acknowledge its leverage. You need to ask for support–balance is not equal. Be okay with the fact that some days one aspect of your life will take more time.
  • Self care isn’t selfish. It’s crucial so you can be your best self in the other aspects of your life! You have to schedule in the fun, the time for yourself. It gives you something to look forward to and gives you a heightened sense of joy, fun and anticipation.
